The Select Board is looking for volunteers for one established commission and two new initiatives. Please respond to Caroline Lamoureux if you are interested and please include a brief paragraph explaining your interest.
We’d love your help and input!
The commission seeks two members to serve as alternates to the commission. (email Al Dionne for more information)
Committee to Review Elected Officials’ Compensation (new!)
We are looking for volunteers to serve on the newly formed Committee to Review Elected Officials’ Compensation. The committee will look at compensation for elected town officials and make recommendations to the Select Board based on a review of similar communities (provided by the New Hampshire Municipal Association) or other potential sources of information. The committee will provide citizens of Rollinsford with an extra layer of engagement and accountability in setting appropriate salary levels for Select Board, Town Clerk, Treasurer, Fire Chief, and others where appropriate. We expect the committee to meet prior to each election/budget cycle so those running for town office will know what the compensation is for that particular office.
Energy Committee (new!)
We are seeking volunteers to serve on a proposed Rollinsford Energy Committee. A resident has come forward with ideas and has agreed to help form such a committee. Possible initiatives include:
- Bring natural gas to Rollinsford
- Propose ways to make our hydro dam more productive
- Bring solar arrays to the transfer station (at no capital cost to the town)
- Evaluate streetlights: adopt LED lighting?
